Giants QB Daniel Jones (concussion) cleared to play vs. Rams

Daniel Jones is on track to play Sunday against the Los Angeles Rams.

New York Giants coach Joe Judge told reporters Friday that Jones was a full participant in practice, and it "appears" the QB will be able to play after suffering a concussion in Week 5. Jones was officially removed from the injury report later Friday.

Jones had to be fully cleared by an independent neurologist to suit up against the Rams.

Jones suffered the concussion on a QB run just before halftime of the Giants' 44-20 loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday. The QB has enjoyed a good start to the 2021 season, authoring career bests in completion percentage (64.3), passing yards (256.4), rushing yards (39.4), passer rating (95.6) and giveaways per game (0.4) through five weeks.

With Saquon Barkley ruled out this week, having Jones in the lineup is critical for Big Blue's chances of pulling the upset against the 4-1 Rams.

New York will also have receiver Sterling Shepard back in the lineup, as he was removed from the injury report. Receivers Darius Slayton (hamstring) and Kadarius Toney (ankle) and offensive lineman Andrew Thomas (foot) are questionable, while Barkley and receiver Kenny Golladay (knee) won't play.
